As I mentioned in some of my earlier posts, the LOL Tour was not the first time I toured with Ahmed Ahmed and Maz Jobrani. The first time I met them was in Egypt, in April 2009, during the Egypt’s First Comedy Rumble Tour. My next few posts will be my thoughts about being a touring photographer for the first time.
I’d like to go about this in a much more organized manner, this time around so I’ve broken down my trip into smaller posts from the very beginning.
The story of my spur of the moment decision to go to Egypt.
Nothing Like a Little Flying
Dammam to Cairo is only a 3 hour flight. But include the fact that I don’t plan things out, coupled with Sherif Azab as a traveling companion and we’re in for some insanity!
A Lifelong Dream
I keep a list. Of all the things I want to do before I die. Visiting the pyramids of Egypt was one of them. Not just the pyramids at Giza, mind you. I was more interested in the step pyramid and tombs of Saqqara and the bent and red pyramids of Dahshur. I finally got to live that dream. And a surreal experience it was…
Yes I know what that title made you think of… you dirty, dirty people This is the story of the first time I met the celebrities of the comedy tour at a Virgin megastore in Cairo during a publicity event. It was an amazing group of people and you could already tell this was going to be an amazing weekend.
Two shows . Back to back. In one of the most populated cities in the world. It doesn’t get any better than this!
I’ll be honest. When I went to the pyramids 2 days before, I thought that would be the best thing to happen to me that weekend. I was wrong. I went to the pyramids again…. this time with my favorite comedians in the world! Life is good.
Ah Alexandria! Just a few hours out of Cairo, but you’d think you were in a different continent. This is the story of the comedy show by the Mediterranean.
With our flight later in the afternoon, me and Sherif plan out some last minute sightseeing (well, it was mostly eating) before saying goodbye.
